Groups of three to eight. This lower-cost option is great for students who want to mix with others of a similar level.
Each learning method has its advantages – and its weak points relative to the other methods. We've drawn up a brief list to highlight what's good about this method of learning and what's not so good about it.
What's great about learning in a group
- Cost-effectiveness – We pass on the benefit of cost sharing to the students in the group.
- Interactivity – You get to interact and participate in roleplays and other activities. This makes learning more fun and can help you make quicker progress.
- The groups at MLC are not too big or diverse – We put together small groups of people of about the same ability, guaranteeing good progress.
- People in groups help each other – It often happens that someone else in the group will ask a question that you didn't quite like to ask, or maybe they'll highlight things you didn't know you didn't know but you're glad to be made aware of – and this can enrich your learning.
What's not so great about learning in a group
- It's not flexible – Courses do of course have to follow a timetable.
- Lesser degree of individual attention – Your teacher won't be able to go off in a completely different direction to suit your individual needs, because we have to work as a group. That said, many people find that the fun and interactivity of learning in a group more than compensate for any lessening of individual attention, and they learn very effectively all the same.
